NYC Weekend Watch: Kung Fu, Sidney Poitier, The Maysles, Chantal Akerman & More

7 April 2016 7:44 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

‘The Revenant,’ Leonardo DiCaprio Dominate BAFTA Awards

14 February 2016 10:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant” came up trumps at the 69th British Academy Film Awards on Sunday night, nabbing five prizes including best film, director and leading actor.

George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” left the field with four BAFTAs – all in the more technical fields – including costume design, production design, make up and hair and editing.

The Martian,” “The Danish Girl,” “Carol” and “Ex-Machina” all left empty-handed this year.

This year’s ceremony was a marked change for Inarritu compared to last year’s awards: in 2015, his pic “Birdman,” was up for 10 nominations but only came away with one win for best cinematography, given to Emmanuel Lubezki.

The glitterati were in full force at London’s Royal Opera House on Valentine’s Day:  Tom Cruise awarded “The Revenant” with the best film prize while Leonardo DiCaprio’s win for best actor in the film was met with »
